Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

I don’t rightly know what to call this photo. It features a small family standing around an oil barrel or other type of barrel. The man is wearing the wide brimmed hat, while a younger man/teen is to the left wearing a newsboy cap. Standing on the barrel is a young boy around 6 or 7 years old and the man is holding a small child, possibly a boy. The shack in the background looks just like that, a shack. Or even a shed. There do not appear to be any windows. Maybe this is the smokehouse. I would hate to live in there unless the unseen sides of the building are amazingly bright and beautiful! I believe this photo is from the 1930s.

    Something tells me this is their home. The unfinished steps to the front? door look pretty rough too.


  2. I think that is a window with a bench in front of it..the opening doesn’t look large enough for a door..I am sure it is a window. School houses often had that roof line:)


  3. A house with roll roofing in two shades for a striped look, and window with screen with bench, my father grew up in a similar small cottage. More interesting is that the boy age 5 maybe, has spectacles. Not many families would get glasses for such a young child.
